Bears stick with Fields throughout ugly loss to Lions

DETROIT (AP) — Chicago Bears coach Matt Eberflus considered taking Justin Fields out of Sunday’s lopsided loss to the Detroit Lions. In the end, though, he decided to let his young quarterback stay in the game. Fields got off to a strong start by rushing for 105 yards in the first quarter, but the final 45 minutes were a disaster. Fields completed only five passes, was intercepted, lost a fumble, and was sacked five times as Detroit outscored Chicago 34-0 over the last three quarters. He finished 7 of 21 for 75 yards, along with his 132 yards rushing. He was sacked seven times overall.
